Employment protection – good idea, bad execution
The rationale behind special protection for some categories of employees is clear and commendable. If the law takes certain employees under special protection, this protection should be tight and prevent employers from circumventing it. On the other hand, such protection cannot be absolute. Otherwise, it might turn out that an employer cannot dismiss employees who have clearly breached the law or caused damage to the company and other employees. Unfortunately, it seems that the latest amendment to the Polish Civil Procedure Code that became effective on 22 September 2023 will result in just that. – Łukasz Chruściel, comments for Rzeczpospolita.
